Welcome, dear listener/reader to this week’s podKast with a “K” in which we welcome Doctor Who fanzine producer Gareth Kavanagh, editor of Vworp Vworp! as a guest for the full show!
Christian Cawley and James McLean are in the hotseat too, with a nice selection of topics under discussion. To kick it off, we mull over the recent Buzzfeed.com list based around the idea of how Doctor Who might have been different had it been created in the USA rather than in Television Centre.
Following this, we spend a few moments appreciating the contributions that the late Christopher Barry made to Doctor Who between 1963 (The Daleks) and 1979 (The Creature from the Pit). Given that we have unofficial fourth podKaster Gareth Kavanagh on hand as well, there’s also a bit of missing episodes chatter in there for you lucky people as well, not to mention some updates on the progress of Vworp Vworp! issue 3…
Rounding off the show (yet taking up a greater chunk of the running time than either of the other topics) are our recommendations, with 1977 serial Underworld getting the lion’s share of the discussion. Also, listen out for Gareth’s request for help deciding which Doctor Who book from his collection he should read next – leave your suggestions in the comments below!
- “Weapon of Choice“
- Ian Levine’s deleted tweet
- Vworp Vworp!
The Kasterborous PodKast theme tune is arranged by Russell Hugo.
